Sometimes you want pizza, and sometimes you want VEGAN PINE NUTS AND SWEET POTATO PIZZA!!
Just picture yourself cozying up on your couch and ready to start an all-night movie marathon. (Can be with your loved one or with a group of friends) But what can make the occasion even better? When you have homemade vegan sweet potato pizza.
My latest recipe start with a herb crust and the topping is up to you! I went with some sweet potatoes and pine nut on top of the classic tomato sauce and vegan cheese.
- 340 grams all-purpose flour (scant 3 cups), plus more for rolling out the dough
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 packet (.25 oz) active dry yeast
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- In a small bowl combine the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Allow setting until foamy, about 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, oregano, parsley, basil, and garlic powder. Pour in the yeast mixture, and slowly stir to combine. Move the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes (sprinkle with more flour if too sticky). Form into a ball.
- Add the olive oil to a large, clean bowl. Place the dough ball in the bowl and flip around a few times, using your hands to spread olive oil over the entire surface of the dough ball. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and set aside in a warm, draft-free spot until doubled in size (about 1 hour).
After the dough has risen, move it to a lightly floured surface. Using the pads of your fingers, gently move around the perimeter of the dough, pressing out to increase the dough in size. For a 13-inch pizza, stretch the dough to 16 inches in diameter, allowing for folding the edges over the cheese.
Place it in the preheated (175′) oven and for 8 minutes. For the last step just hint the pine nuts on top and leave it for two more minutes.
And all it lest to do is enjoy your vegan sweet potato pizza!
